About us

Knowing the Origin

The Origin, the name of the cafe, comes from the short phrase, “Knowing the Origin”, which represents the literal stand point of what it means.

With our standpoint, The Origin is “Find the Origin of life, spread health, hope, environmental protection, and civilisation to every corner of the world.”

What our customers are saying.

"This is the best breakfast we have had in the entire time we have been in NZ. Cant remember the last time in Sydney we had such a great brekkie to. All vegan and also temple food. No onion or garlic. Coffee is great and there are these cool tea infusion devices they have on the counter which is interesting to watch. Hosts are super nice !"
